- [Voiceover] Hi, I'm Morten Rand-Hendriksen, one of the staff authors here at lynda.com, and I'd like to welcome you to Start with a Theme: Twenty Fifteen. Every year, The Wordpress project releases a new default theme, and in this course we'll look at the latest one, called Twenty Fifteen. To start off, I'll give you a brief history of the default themes, and show you what Twenty Fifteen looks like out of the box. Then, we'll look at the basic customizer settings, and I'll show how to change things like the color scheme, and display a custom author box.
And finally we'll wrap up by looking at some advanced features like menu item descriptions, and how to add a custom social media menu. Twenty Fifteen is a great, accessible, responsive, modern, flat-designed theme, with a heavy focus on content and typography, that will work great on blogs and websites alike. It has some pretty nifty features built-in, and I'm here to show you how to get the most out of them. So, let's get cracking, with Start with a Theme: Twenty Fifteen.
